A neglected and unwanted seven-year-old German Shepherd Husky mix named Elsa lived in an isolated area with an igloo-shaped kennel as her shelter for five years. She’s survived without any human companion, proper food, and warmth in the middle of the winter. Eventually, her way of living made her lose trust in humans and her hope for finding a better home.
But she’s in for a treat when local animal control officers heard about her heart-aching situation and immediately arrived at the scene. When they found her, poor Elsa was afraid and shivering. They did what any kind-hearted person would do and brought her in their car. There, she experienced warmth for the very first time and thanked her rescuers for saving her.
They knew she needed lots of TLC and decided to bring her to an animal shelter in Irwin, PA, called Pet Friends. The minute she arrived, every volunteer and staff member was all set to give the love she lacked and help her regain her trust in humans again.
Everyone at the shelter admires how sweet and friendly Elsa is. But they still want what’s best for her and set out to find her a forever home. They got the word out to all animal lovers and hoped that one family would take her in. However, no one inquired or had the interest to adopt her.
Elsa then spends the rest of her Christmas at the Pet Friends animal shelter for three years straight, still waiting for that special someone who would give her a second chance.
Luckily, she didn’t have to wait any longer. Pet Friends collaborated with WTAE-TV Pittsburgh news and shared Elsa’s story on the air as part of their Christmas Eve program. After airing her touching story, it moved the hearts of many people watching and instantly got tons of responses about her adoption.
Pet Friends thanked WTAE-TV that Elsa finally found a family who welcomed her with open arms. According to Toni Youkin, one of Pet Friends’ volunteers, her adoption was truly a Christmas miracle.
